Greetings, from the new president of the OCDA for 2017. My name is Laurie Bruder. I am excited to share the plans of the board for 2017.
In May, we will be hosting an “Educate your Eye” clinic with Francois Bergeron. This clinic is open to drivers, judges, and people perhaps, interested in becoming a judge.
In the morning, we will have a classroom session. In the afternoon, you will get the opportunity to judge 5 tests at various levels for horses and ponies. As well, you will see it through the judges eye.
We will be hosting 5 dressage and cones shows. They are situated in Flesherton, Ariss, London, Simcoe and Acton. Hopefully, each competitor, will be able to say, they competed at a show close to home.
Points will be awarded for each show, towards year end awards. The July show, will be held on a Saturday, and lessons will be available on Sunday with the judge. A great way to improve your tests.
We are looking for sponsors for our year end awards. With your sponsorship, you will receive a ticket to our year end banquet to present your award. Check our website for more details.
Without our volunteers, we couldn’t even begin to run our shows. Thank-you again, for your support.
For those of you, we haven’t seen in awhile, we would love to see you! To everyone else, that has supported us through thick and thin. We will look forward to seeing you in May.
Have a wonderful holiday with family and friends.
Laurie, Sharon, Mary C. Mary B.,Martha, Anne Marie, Pam, Ross and Christine
